Expertise

Workplace disputes are often a highly emotive area for both employers and employees and, if not managed well, can be very detrimental to a business. SWS Lawyers advises our clients on how to navigate workplace disputes that may arise, including in relation to underpayment claims, bullying and harassment allegations and complaints. We also advise our clients on how to navigate performance management, including in the lead up to the termination of an underperforming employee’s employment.

Often, when an employee is causing issues in a workplace, an employer is faced with making the decision to terminate an employee’s employment. We advise our clients on how to most appropriately navigate this process and how to reduce the risk of any unfair dismissal or general protections claims. SWS Lawyers also represents our clients when a claim is made in the Fair Work Commission and in the Federal Court of Australia.

We provide advice to our clients in respect of redundancies, both in relation to individual employees and in the context of a business restructure, which results in widespread redundancies. SWS Lawyers advises our clients as to how to navigate what is a difficult and challenging process and to achieve the best outcome for the business going forward.

We understand that workplace disputes can be a problematic area for employers to navigate and can often arise unexpectedly. We work to provide our clients with clear and practical advice to resolve the matter as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
